Maree Wilson - In the Absence of Words

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

MD Gallery proudly presents Maree Wilson - In the Absence of Words.

This new body of works celebrates both the light and dark of elusive landscape memories: the moments before a storm kicks in... the wonder of the light coming from the black. Wilson's smooth polished layers of ground and subtle washes of paint are frequently disrupted by holes that are gouged and drilled through the surface.

Born in Waitakere City and now living in Whangarei, Wilson has continually referenced the New Zealand coastline in her paintings.

Water, Atmospheric Disturbance and Erosion are all elements that feature strongly. She asks the viewer to consider the concept of place and where we are in that place as being inseparable.
